SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A tree fell across Eastern Avenue, blocking part of the road in Springfield’s Mason Square Thursday night.

22News shot video of the downed tree that had snapped off at its base next to a house on Eastern Avenue near Quincy Street. Much of the upper part of the tree was in the roadway.

An officer on site told 22News that it was an old rotted tree, that was probably brought down by the wind. No one was hurt when the tree came down just before 6:15 p.m. Thursday.

One side of the street was blocked off, but traffic was getting through on the other side.
